And now the real work of Advent. Waiting...and waiting. But for what? Jesus' birth? The coming of the Reign of God? Truly it's already here. So, this Advent I am actually trying to be more conscious of the Kingdom here and now. If I can increase my awareness just a little bit each day, hopefully by the time Christmas comes I'll be ready to see Jesus present.
Tomorrow begins the first weekend of our big province Chapter meetings. There will be tons of sisters and associates present, lots to discuss, and with discernment added on top of that, I will be more than exhausted come Sunday. But, I think there is a pool where we are staying as well as entertainment of some kind, so I think I'll make it. If you're reading this, add some prayers for us this weekend. More prayers can only be a good thing. May your Advent beginnings be blessed.
